Loyola is on the iconic St. Charles streetcar line and across the street from Audubon Park and Audubon Zoo.

And it’s just a 20-minute drive to the Central Business District and historic French Quarter.download map

Top 10 reasons to live with the Pack
Living on campus makes it easy to meet new people, make lifelong friends, go to campus events, join student organizations, and participate in leadership experiences.
National research finds that students who live on campus have better grade point averages (GPAs) than students who live off campus. Students living on campus are also more satisfied with their college experience and more likely to graduate than their commuter counterparts.
Living on campus means no sitting in traffic or looking for parking. It means a stress-free commute to class and co-curricular activities. The library, classroom buildings, and on-campus dining options are less than a 10-minute walk from each residence hall.
Safety and security are our top priorities on campus. University Police, Residential Life staff, and on-call mental health counselors are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Students living on campus have convenient access to our University Sports Complex, group fitness classes, healthy dining options, worship services, and the Student Health Center.
Living off campus may seem less expensive, but once rent, food, gas, water, electricity, internet/cable, furniture, and maintenance add up, living on campus often becomes not just cheaper but also much simpler — everything is included in one convenient bill.
Living on campus offers a variety of options for students of all grade levels. First-year students may apply to live in a Themed Living Community: a group of students intentionally brought together by a common purpose in order to make living on campus a more personalized experience. We also offer a First Year Living environment to freshmen, which provides specialized events that assist first-year students in adjusting to college life. Sophomores, juniors, and seniors have the option to apply for suite- and apartment-style living, which offers additional common space and kitchen access. All of these opportunities enhance and complement your in-classroom experience — it all depends on what’s best for you.
As you adjust to life away from home, trained student and professional staff members in Residential Life are available to assist with personal and academic concerns 24/7. Additionally, resident ministers live in each building to interact and support students personally, academically, and spiritually.
Eating great food is a huge part of living in New Orleans, and all students are required to participate in a campus dining plan. Sodexo’s “dining partner” concept allows you to choose from over 25 dining options between Loyola’s campus and Tulane’s, including Starbucks and our new addition, locally owned Deaux pizzeria.
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! Living on campus puts you in the heart of the Uptown New Orleans area. Enjoy convenient access to the streetcar, Audubon Park, Audubon Zoo, and countless local restaurants and festivals. Living here is really a one-of-a-kind experience!
